Patriots get tough first test on gridiron

By Andrew Stark

First-year Independence football coach Justin Hardin won’t have any time to ease into his new role as the leader of the Patriots.

CarolinaPreps.tv released the schedule for its third-annual Kickoff Night, a grouping of two games that annually kick off the football season in a stand-alone format, and the Patriots are on tap for the nightcap for the third straight year.

By Charles Kelleher Harris

It’s 10 pm on Saturday night, do you know where your kids are? If you don’t there is a good chance that a member of the Mint Hill Police Department’s night shift knows.

On this particular Saturday they are breaking up an underage party for the second night in a row at the same address.

“This girl is home alone all weekend, her parents are away, so she had a party last night,” explains Officer Kelly, “So we get a noise complaint call.”

All four units respond within minutes to the otherwise quiet, neatly hedged neighborhood.
